Rifle range on the Peak: The Butts [????- ]
Martin Booth mentions this range a couple of times, as part of his walk along Harlech Road:
[...] passing a waterfall, and arriving at the place where the soldiers lay down to shoot across a valley at the butts.
You can still see the butts area today.
At the junction of Harlech & Lugard roads is a small cleared area with a pavilion and a few exercise stations. In the southern corner of that cleared area is a path that leads off through the bushes. If you follow the path you'll reach the old butts area.
The path passes a non-descript concrete hut on the right, then on the left is a stone wall, with an earth bank on the other side. I believe this is where the targets were set up. The people managing the targets would be safely down behind the wall.
The path carries on to a small clearing - I think this was the butts area, where the bullets would land after passing through the targets
The path continues from there up to the top of High West. It's a steep climb, but there are great views from the top.
